Praying With Scripture


We will resume on Thursday September 6th.

Perhaps this is the year you would like to join us on Thursday evenings to spend some time in prayer reflecting on Scripture. It’s hard to believe that this begins our 8th year. This gathering of men and women from all parts of Ave Maria Parish meet in parishioners’ homes and pray with the Scripture readings for the coming Sunday. We find it enriches our experience of the Liturgy of the Word at Mass on Sunday and offers a rich experience of being “A House Church,” much like those of the early Christians.

Please consider joining us. We are always delighted to see new faces.

When: Thursday evenings at 7:00 pm, Sept. thru May.

Where: Please call for this week’s location….You’ll receive a schedule at the first meeting you attend if you decide to continue.

For more information or directions, please call Margaret West: 810-679-3906

Hope you can join us for an enriching evening with the Word of the Lord!

All are Welcome!
